The Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) and the Illinois Center for Specialized Professional Support (ICSPS) would like to thank those of you who attended the Perkins Administrator Meeting on March 23rd.
At this meeting we explored the new Uniform Grant Guidance, EDGAR, the Perkins legislation and WIOA’s impact on CTE with our guest speaker Michael Brustein from Brustein & Manasevit, PLLC.
Following the workshop the CTE Team of the ICCB provided an overview of the FY18 Postsecondary Perkins Grant Guidelines, updates on monitoring and upcoming professional development and an opportunity for colleges to meet their ICCB liaison.
This workshop will provide information about definitions of the Perkins Core Indicators and will assist participants in understanding the path from student enrollment to Core Indicator achievement. Through examination of local data, participants will have the opportunity to practice applying that knowledge to their college, so that they can plan to maximize student success and college achievement of Perkins Core Indicators. Participants will complete Perkins Plan Form 1 Accountability Data Snapshot Worksheet.
Attendees should be new CTE staff with two years or less experience with PODS CTE Performance Data.
